"The true New Yorker secretly believes that anyone living anywhere else has got to be, in some sense, kidding."
"But it's the truth even if it didn't happen."
"I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations."
-George Bernard Shaw
